I am new to the forum and looking forward to spending some time reading posts and learning what others have to say. I am excited to hopefully share some news soon regarding my new 1911. I have always wanted one and finally stepped up to the plate. I got a SW1911 E Series in stainless. I did a lot of research and settled on this model because I believe the fit and finish and positive reviews make it one of the best 1911's under 1K. Anyway, glad to be part of the forum and looking forward to contributing.
